The tony, gated enclave of Cap Cana, positioned on the eastern tip of the Dominican Republic, where the Caribbean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean, offers a posh and cosmopolitan vibe with a Dominican flair. Its exclusive marina features upscale restaurants and boutiques, and it's a quick trip to the wide, white-sand beaches that area is known for. Soft adventure is ripe in the verdant tropical interior at the awesome Scape Park, a huge expanse of protected land. And golf is practically a religion here, with a Jack Nicklaus course set right along the ocean with spectacular views and challenging holes. There's also an equestrian center where you can ride or take in a polo match, and multiple spas where you can enjoy a treatment. More than a dozen restaurants throughout the community offer gourmet cuisine, and meals here are often served with glasses of bubbly alongside sparkling ocean views. You can also kick back with a cigar and rum cocktail—local Dominican specialties—and take in the splendor of this island setting.
